Alan Warner’s Morvern Callar, winner of the Somerset Maugham Award, is joining the Vintage Classics list to mark the novel’s twentieth anniversary.
Morvern Callar shows how the eponymous character, a young supermarket employee, reacts to the suicide of her strange boyfriend.
Other Scottish novels released as Vintage Classics at the same time (6 August) include the dark comedy Swing Hammer Swing! by Jeff Torrington, a tale of Hannah Luckraft’s quest for the ultimate altered state Paradise by A.L. Kennedy, a book described by the New York Times as bearing a resemblance to Tristram Shandy title The Trick is to Keep Breathing by Janice Galloway, and a tale of a narrator’s odd experiment The Dumb House by John Burnside.
